  • Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker


  • 4 large chicken breasts;
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup water or broth
  • spring onions for topping
  • sesame seeds for topping


  • Place chicken breasts into the instant pot and pour in one cup water or broth. Place the lid on the instant pot and turn the valve to the sealed position. Press the pressure cook or manual button and set timer to 30 minutes. ( if your chicken breasts are large they need 30 minutes if these are very thin breast than take off 7 minutes).
  • Once the instant pot stops counting release the pressure by turning the valve to open. Mix together teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, minced garlic, garlic chili sauce, and cracked black pepper. Whisk well.
  • Turn off instant pot and then turn on saute mode. Shred the chicken and pour in sauce mixture. Bring to a boil and stir well. This will thicken some around the chicken. Turn off saute mode.
  • Serve with rice and topped with sesame seeds and spring onions.


If you want a saucier result double your sauce recipe to have some for your rice.
